Folks running illegal syndicates and transporting illegal stuff like Bhang do so using hired vehicles. Once your vehicle is used for such errands and gets impounded by the cops, it will be a painful bye bye to your investment. The risks and maintenance costs arising from careless driving will also cost you a lot. Take your money elsewhere.

Its abit risky but all you need is a guy you can trust and monitor closely what he his doing with the car. For instance location yake ya kutegea customers, nakama anapeana for hire (which is the worst part), make sure you use the car once in a while ndo ujue kama jamaa anaitumia vibaya.
Ikifika service peleka mwenyewe ama ifanywe kama uko ndio asipitie shortcuts.

Do not try that business. I know a friend who is stuck in a court case. He hired his car to a jamaa who did a pastor nganga in Mwea and disappeared. jamaa ako kotini charged with "Causing Death by Careless Driving". The guy who had hired the car was a regular customer, so they operated on trust rather than paperwork. Gari insurance walikataa kulipa saying it was not insured for PSV or some other story like that.

Car hire is a no no. Heri ufanye kazi ya taxi, I say this from experience. Two cars about two years old sai zinamea nyasi mtaani. Mismanaged nikaamua zitulie kwa mlango

Then there are those Niccurs, who hire the car and sell it to unsuspecting buyers, they even make a fake log book with the help of insiders huko KRA, Once sold the "sellers" make an anonymous call to cops that the car has been stolen, then cops nab you if you are lucky enough not to be shot, then its impounded kwa police station, court case, blahhhh blahhh stress.

Already in it and you seem to know nothing about it to a point of turning to the village. Anyway, this is a loss business. Thats why you find people like your friend do not own a single car in the fleet. They hire from you so that they can hire to others. They are basically brokers. They know the maintanance cost plus the risks involved cannot sustain the car. So they minimise their risk by not owning any. You the car owner on the other hand bears all the risk from bad wear and tear to theft and illegal carriages. Achana nayo
